Jarmel Kizel And D-6 Developments Team To Create Seven New Luxury Residences

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (FEBRUARY 5 2007) —Jarmel Kizel Architects & Engineers, Inc., reports that construction of a seven-unit luxury condominium project located at 50 Journal Square in Jersey City, New Jersey, is underway and construction is moving at a rapid pace.

Jarmel Kizel, along with D6 Developments LLC, a private real estate development company, which specializes in multi-family, retail and adaptive reuse projects, is renovating a 1920s-era, eight-story office building and repositioning the facility into luxury condominiums. The building will be called Arcade Condominiums, and will include seven 1,500-square-foot single-floor residences over 3,000 square feet of ground floor retail. The building is located in the Journal Square section of the city which has been recognized as the premier location for new development off of the waterfront. The Arcade building is located directly across the street from the Journal Square PATH station, adjacent to public parking and surrounded by retail.

Jarmel Kizel is responsible for the architectural and engineering design of the project, as well as obtaining land entitlements.

Matthew B. Jarmel, AIA, MBA, principal of Jarmel Kizel commented, “This is such an exciting project for us to be involved with and we are pleased to be assisting D6 in bringing its vision for this historic office building to life. This is a unique adaptive reuse project, and once completed will offer its residents an upscale lifestyle with a host of first-class amenities.”

“We are pleased to be converting this former office building into a condominium community that will greatly benefit Jersey City and hopefully be the impetus for other conversions of obsolete buildings,” commented Jon Mills, principal-in-charge of development and leasing, D6 Developments. “Its location in the heart of Jersey City’s downtown is quickly becoming a desirable destination for variety of homeowners from empty-nesters to business professionals commuting into Manhattan. Jersey City is also witnessing a tremendous surge of new residential developments, which is creating a plethora of living dining and cultural venues.”
